Over the weekend Denver Police got in a chase with a guy in a tractor. I didn't know tractors could get down like that...
DENVER -- The man who allegedly stole a tractor and led police on a chase from City Park to Lower Downtown on Friday night has been identified.
Thomas Busch, 37, is being held for investigation of theft of a motor vehicle, the Denver Police Department said Sunday. Police said more charges are possible.
